Overview

Case Title: Eddington v. Fred’s Inc.
Case No. 2:18-cv-00056-JRG-RSP

On March 8, 2018, we filed this collective and class action on behalf of all current and former employees who worked for Fred’s as non-exempt employees and were not paid for all hours worked.

What is the Case about?

We filed this collective and class action against Fred’s in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee for a class of hourly employees who were not paid for all hours worked.

The Case alleges that Fred’s violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay hourly employees for all hours worked. Specifically, these workers were required to work off the clock.

Plaintiffs believe that they and other hourly employees are entitled to recover unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, interest on the unpaid wages, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, and costs.

Who is Eligible for this Case?

Anyone who worked for Fred’s as an hourly worker in the past three years and was not paid for all hours worked is potentially eligible for the Case.

Can I be fired for joining?
